Recipe | Golden Syrup Cookies

One strong memory from my childhood was making cookies at my Godmother's house. Her husband is american and she got this amazing recipe to make cookies for him when he was missing home. It is the most gooey delicious cookie ever, and making it again brought back so many great memories. 


The recipe is simple, but stupidly yum! This ones a real crowd pleaser. 

You rub together 8oz of Plain Flour and 4oz of Butter which creates a crumbly mixture.




Throw in 4oz of Caster Sugar. Mix it together with the Plain Flour and Butter mix. 

I chose to add 1tsp of Vanilla Essence, but you could always add 2tsp of Ginger if you fancied something different!


Then you need to add in 3/4 of a tsp of Bicarbonate Soda. This makes the cookies super googey and tasty.

Finally, you add 4 tablespoons of Golden Syrup - however, I only used 4 normal spoons otherwise it would be super sweet. 


Roll the dough up into little balls and place onto a baking tray. Bear in mind that these balls will expand by three times so be careful how big you make them. Mine were too big! 

Your cookies will only need about 10 minutes in the oven, at around 180-200 degrees. When you take them out of the oven, make sure you bang the tray down a couple of times so they flatten. 



Leave to cool a bit, and the cookies will crisp! Make sure you take the cookies off the paper first though else they will stick to it. The perfect winter treat. 

Do you like the look of these cookies? Have you got any winter cookie recipes?
